Hi, I'm going to be away from an internet connection for a few weeks at a
time over the next few weeks but would like to be able to carry a snapshot
of my Wiki to reference so I can work on some materials while I'm on the
road. I've been looking around via Google and I'm finding a number of
projects that look promising but everyone I've looked at so far seems to
fall into the vaporware category. Does anyone know of a workable solution?
Something that runs in either Linux or XP would be good. Or maybe there's
something out there that'll let me take an export of a bunch of page from my
wiki and produce a pdf or something?
Anything that'll let me carry and comfortably view a bunch of articles from
the wiki would be helpful.
Presumably you have a laptop of some kind or you wouldn't consider Linux. Have
you thought about simply installing mysql and mediawiki on it and doing a dump/
restore? That's what I do (I'm using Fedora FC10, but I would think almost any
modern Linux distro would make it quite easy), and it takes far less disk space
than you might think, even for a decent sized wiki.
